    difference

    I would like to ask native speakers of English the difference of the feeling caused by the position of not.

    What is the difference between
    #1 Didn't you notice the wild flowers along the road?
    #2 Did you not notice the wild flowers along the road?

    This is a question from a book. Using "least", put the two sentences into one and start from This hat.
    This has is two thousand yen. Those hats are more than two thousand yen.
    So, I made as the following
    This hat is two thousand yen and the least expensive of the hats.
    Is this OK? Please give me good sentences.

    Thank you very much.

    No difference in meaning. The first is more colloquial, the second is formal and slightly archaic.

    This is a question from a book. Using "least", put the two sentences into one and start from This hat.

    This hat is two thousand yen. Those hats are more than two thousand yen.

    So, I made as the following:

    This hat is two thousand yen and the least expensive of the hats.

    Is this OK? It is perfect. Please give me good sentences.

    Thank you very much.
